For two years I have been tracking my daily walking. Granted, there was that one span of time where I gave up wearing the pedometer, but two years ago I started doing this. I have been to Demopolis, Alabama.

I walked to the Space Center in Houston, Texas.
I have seen the Luecke Trees.
I have visited Kermit, Texas (who could resist with a name like that?!). I went to Alamagordo and went sledding in White Sands.
I went to church in Mesa, Arizona and got to hear an old college buddy preach (and enjoyed it very much, Rowdy!).
In a last-minute change of plans, I swung north and visited the Grand Canyon, Lake Mead, and the Hoover Dam.
I have been to Joshua Tree National Park, Salvation Mountain and the Salton Sea. I have looked at the stars from the Palomar Observatory.
Two years (almost exactly) after starting, I am here.

I made it to the Pacific Ocean and have even this month gotten to THE DROP OFF (cue Finding Nemo music)
I have finished Phase I of the walk and have stepped off into the ocean to begin Phase II.
I'll be walking on water for the next who-knows-how-many months. At the end of Phase II, I will be having a cup of tea (and Gardenias for Breakfast) with one of my favorite authors, Robin Jones Gunn.
